    I'm female, with 6 tattoos. Only one is slightly difficult to cover. Both of my wrists are tattooed, but my watch easily covers my other. I'm happy to cover it up. I realized when I got it that, like it or not, there would be situations where covering it would be best. I don't agree, but I comply. I for one would be completely comfortable with a completely tatted up nurse caring for me. It's all about attitude, and if they're caring for me in a professional manner, the tattoos are a plus Go

    I have a Dell Inspiron, and I love it. I've had no problems with it, it stays charged pretty well, and it's a pretty royal indigo blue

    What kind of loan is it that you have?

    I get stafford loans, both subsidized and unsubsidized and this is not the case at my school. We are issued a refund check before the start of the semester and whatever is left after our tuition is paid for is what we are issued in our refund. It is then our responsibility to use our refund as we choose, whether its to buy books, pay rent, or whatever else we want.

    But to answer your question, it doesnt seem right that your school is doing this. I would contact the financial aid department and ask them to remove the books from your bill. Im not positive but I think the only thing that has to be charged to your account is tuition and fees, everything left over should be issued to you in refund form.

    I WISH my school was like this!! We don't get our loan money until around 6 weeks into the semester!! Pell refunds come even later, which I understand because they don't have them at the beginning of the semester. It's apalling that we have to wait for money that WE are responsible for paying back!! Crazy!

    I love the ATI practice questions, because I get instant feedback. I hate answering all of them and THEN finding out what I made. I pretty much do as many study questions as I can. I prefer ones that offer rationales too.

    My advice? Do the practice tests!

    I've found that the more I go to clinical, the more confident I become. It's all about doing something unfamiliar, and even though I'm usually scared to death, I fake confidence, and I've found that once I get to do a skill on a REAL person, it all clicks!

    I hope things start looking up for you soon!

    I'm just in my first semester, so I have a lot of learning to do, but at this point I'm interested in learning more about Hospice care. There's no telling what I'll end up doing once I actually get to experience a little of everything!

    One of my biggest frustrations is having to get up for supplies (pen, highlighter, drug guide, review book, ect..) I bought a square plastic crate, and now before I start, I put everything I need in there, and keep my laptop close too. I've noticed that once everything is right where I need it, all the time, I get more done. I do better later at night, especially when I dont' have class the next day.

    Study for an hour, then take a 10 minute break...repeat.

    Reward yourself when you study like you want to!

    So far it's gone pretty well, but I still have several things in front of me before the official end of the semester. 2 more exams, a dosage competency (must have 100%) and a foley competency. So, ask me on May 11th, finals day!! LOL
